ST:TOS episode, “What are Little Girls Made Of?”
(Oct 1966 air date)
I’ve seen this episode before, several times, but don’t recall noticing this before and I’m watching it now. Much is made of the first interracial kiss on TV being when Captain Kirk kissed Lieutenant Uhura in the ST:TOS episode “Plato’s Stepchildren” that aired in Nov 1968, but what about this kiss, lips to lips, about 5 minutes into the WALGMO episode (and two years before the PS episode):
Doesn’t this count? They both are heterosexuals, presumably. Okay it’s not a kiss of passion, it’s a kiss between friends — Uhura is wishing Chapel well before the nurse beams down to see her once-fiancé after five years apart. Not passion, but still interracial. That counts, doesn’t it?
Not a big deal but I found that interesting.
Additionally, and not really the point I wanted to post about but it’s so blatantly obvious I couldn’t believe it when I saw it, but about 35 minutes later Captain Kirk breaks off a stalactite to defend himself with, and it is a big penis:
What??? That had to be intentional. Never noticed that before either. Sometimes I can be a little slow.
But if I was working with Sherry Jackson, my stalactite might be that big too.
